You can try this command:

#chmod 777 /var/www/html/

Because this is permission related error.

Before going to give 777 permission to ur documentroot, make sure what access you give the owner, group, and others. 777, probably is a bad idea. That will cause hacking simple.

i think we have similar problem

try to check the permissions in your document root:

#namei -m /document/root/path

if its not in the 755 permissions try to replace it until the root..

#chmod -R 755 /document/root/path ->recursively changes permission
mine was:
#chmod -R 755 /var/www/html

and then

#ls -ld /var/www/html/
#ls -ld /var/www
#ls -ls /var

to check that it has the 755 permission already..

i hope it'll work for you.
